The Christmas decorations are already up in some Irish stores
No, no, no.
Aside from Mariah Carey and people that genuinely want it to be Christmas for 365 days of the year, there's another bunch of people that genuinely want to eradicate all sense of time, occasion and normality - retailers.
Christ, retailers would be over the moon if they could keep the Christmas decorations up for 12 months of the year.
The first sight of Christmas trees and mistletoe is getting earlier and earlier every year and while we're 100% not against the Christmas season, it's called the Christmas season for a reason.
FYI, it's not fecking Christmas in August. Stop trying to make this a thing.
Anyway, after Selfridges in London made headlines with their
blatant marketing initiative attempt to spread some early festive cheer, the Irish branches of Brown Thomas have already put up their Christmas decorations.
Our response to this? No, no, no.
Then again, there are always people that want to do their Christmas shopping in August. You know who you are.
Where's The Grinch when you need him?
